Steven Cohen’s Point72 Uses Social Media to Recruit Quants

Note from the Publisher:  In an artile originally posted on the Financial Times yesterday, it was reported that Steven Cohen’s new family office venture – Point72 – is aggressively utilzing social media to lure trading talent into the firm.  Steven Cohen’s reputation was sullied after his prior hedge fund SAC Capital was fined $1.8 billion for insider trading, and he was banned from managing external client money until 2018.  Point72 is utilzing LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+, Glassdoor and Twitter in the near future.  In fact, this is a recruiting trend that other hedge funds, family offices and RIAs would be wise to embrace.
